Whew! I just couldn't wait any longer for the results on Quinn's hips so I called OFA and her hips are officially rated GOOD. This is a weight off my mind and I have just contacted the stud dog owner so that I can make arrangements for Quinn to visit Keegan. Next week we have a visit with the repro vet to do a few tests and then it is just countdown until she comes into heat.

This past weekend Norman built me a teeter for the dogs! Yep, I now can train them on the first piece of MOVEABLE equipment (which is a scary thing for some dogs). We still have work to do, but now that I have it I can shape the behavior with positive reinforcement.

I figure it might be nice to keep up with my blog again, we have so much that is and will be going on this year that I decided I better fill everyone in. First off, on a whim I took Laika into the ring for her CGC (canine good citizen) test and she passed with flying colors - we didn't even practice! Not to be outdone, Demi took Opal in the ring last weekend without me knowing and passed her CGC also! I really couldn't be prouder of this young team.

We are gearing up for Quinn's first litter later this year (gosh how time is flying!) to BIS/BISS CH. Bayouland's Creme Brulee. I have been taking seminars and reading many books in order to be best prepare for this big event.
